LAND OF THE BRAVE-- The age-old struggle of big against small—of preservation against progress. ––The New York Times 


I have known very few people who have projects that could authentically be called a life’s work, but this film and the struggle it documents have been central to Joel’s life throughout the years I have known him. In many ways this cause and even this film have defined him. Together they celebrate the nobles of human endeavors, a passionate and selfless pursuit of justice that has long been denied. This film is worthy of completion and I hope all will see fit to make that happen.

–– Bruce Joel Rubin, ACADEMY AWARD --GHOST
